Everytime you start a story with once upon a time
It has to end with "and they all lived happily ever after"
Sounding in a rhyme
Ending with laughter
My story doesn't
My story is the spit from the angry people
The dissappointing looks of shame
The stories of 'what ifs'
The look that "you could do better"
The "ideas" people give you on what to do with your life
My story is the dirt of new life
The small smiles of the greatful
The scares of hurt
Staying on the field til the lights go out
Taking care of younger siblings like a parent
And the joy of a second chance
But our story
Is the sun through the trees
The handshake of new friends
The grace of a beautiful swan
Is a beautiful one
It doesn't hide in the shadows
Or watch as people starve
The story of our people
Is a happily ever after
But my story
My story is not
My story doesn't end until everyone has smiles
My greatest dreams are reached
And the spit turns to tears of joy
My story will end in a Happily Ever After
